S.M.A.R.T Self tests not working on kingston m.2

  • I'm having problems running S.M.A.R.T tests on my KINGSTON SA400M8120G which i used as system drive. I'm running OMV 4.1.35-1 (Arrakis), kernel Linux 4.19.0-0.bpo.9-amd64. When running the short test through the omv gui i get the following:


    Checking for S.M.A.R.T support with:

    Code
    smartctl --info /dev/sda


    Shows me that that the M.2 both supports and has enabled S.M.A.R.T support:


    Any idea what to do?

  • line 9: Device is: Not in smartctl database [for details use: -P showall]



    is the reason

  • Thanks i didn't see that. Couldn't find a DB that has my device in it. And for some reason to add a device to the db you have to run a short self test which i can't because the device doesn't exist in the DB. I guess i will have to do without the S.M.A.R.T tests for this device and just check the attributes manually every now and then
